New Delhi, Sept 20 (PTI) In the wake of worsening flood situation in parts of North India, Railways today cancelled some trains bound for Dehradun and Haridwar while a few others were diverted or short terminated at various stations.

 

The steps were taken after land slides were reported between Haridwar-Motichur sections and breaches between Raisi-Balawali on Moradabad Division, said a Northern Railway spokesperson.

 

He said the Saharanpur-Delhi Jn and Delhi-Haridwar passenger trains have been cancelled for the day along with Dehradun-Chennai Express and Dehradun-Saharanpur passenger train.

 

Railways have started help desks in Haridwar, Dehradun and Moradabad for providing assistance to passengers affected by the floods under instructions from Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee, the spokesperson said.

 

Railways have said tickets already booked will be revalidated on the next convenient date as per the request of the passengers.
